AIR CONDITIONER CONDENSATE DRAIN
A Condensate Blockage Can Be Costly In Damage to Your Home and Equipment
Article submission by: Stanley Rett / Florida
The Mighty Pump is the easy way to clear blocked A/C condensate
drain lines without nitrogen, gas cartridges, water hoses, or electricity needed for wet/vacs.
Quickly clears slime, mold and dirt clogs out of A/C drain lines.
This lightweight, reversible, hand-operated pump generates enough pressure or suction to clear blocked lines from inside or outside a home or building. It can also be used to empty standing water from condensate pans, overflow pans,
and water heater pans.
Flexible inlet and outlet hoses connect to standard condensate drain lines (a ¾" adapter is also included.) Two spring check valves permit 2-way flow, but prevent backflow. The pump can be cleaned easily by flushing it with clean water.
The Mighty Pump's primary use is for condensate drain cleaning, but it is also useful for moving water in other applications such as:
- Draining a condensate overflow pan
- Draining a water heater overflow pan
- Draining a tub
1. To vacuum a condensate drain line:
Connect the vacuum end of the Mighty Pump & #153;, using the enclosed coupling, to the discharge end of the condensate drain line or item needing draining. Note the direction of the FLOW arrow on the bottom of the pump body. Place the discharge hose end in a bucket or a location for disposal of the waste water.
2. Push-out a condensate drain line:
Connect the pressure end of the Mighty Pump & #153;, using the enclosed coupling, to the upstream end of the condensate line or item to be blown out. Note the direction of the FLOW arrow on the bottom of the pump body. Secure over ¾ & #148 pipe with supplied clamp.
